This looks like some badass art you'd see on the side on an arcade machine back in the day.
Or airbrushed on the side of someone's van.

The LS is on par with absurdly difficult to beat Machine classic god descend cards, but his illustration is ugly and his awoken skills are lacking.
Shoukon 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
I find this illustration good looking.
Well I mean, a devil dragon should look "ugly" and menacing rather than looking like a pretty boy.

Personal opinion aside,

For binding problems, I could use bind-heal awokens (such as Gadius) or bind-heal actives.

Badges only work if you start a dungeon in solo. If you play in coop or disconnect from coop, badges will not function.

True, he's not pretty, but still a powerful card. The HP boost makes him reasonably tanky and rows make this guy extra deadly.
Dual Anima leads on a devil/dragon team means an unconditional 1.82x HP so a typical fully +297 team would have around 38k HP in solo, and 57k in co-op.

Just for fun, let's swap him for Xiang Mei on that team.

Scorching Dragon Angel, Uriel
Scorching Dragon Angel, Uriel
Enthusiast Red Dragonbound, Gadius
Enthusiast Red Dragonbound, Gadius

Please tell me if I mess up the calculation!
Assume I manage to make 2 six-orb fire rows and 3 three-orb combos of some other color.

Double Anima leads in co-op = 7.5*7.5 = 56.25x from LS
12 fire row awakens, and with 2 six-orb combos = 1+(0.1*2*12) = 3.4x
6-orb combo bonus = 1+[(6-3)/4] = 1.75x
2 fire orb enhance awakens (40% of the 12 fire orbs are enhanced = 4.8 enhanced orbs. Round down to 4 and assume there are 2 in each row) = (1+0.06*2)*(1+0.05*2) = 1.23x
5 total combos = 1+[(5-1)/4] = 2x
Anima's Active Skill = 2x
+297 Anima with base atk of 2,274

Damage from Anima alone = 56.25*3.4*1.75*1.23*2*2*2,274 = 3,744,511 damage (or ~11.2 million vs gods). Does that seem right?

P.S. 3 fire rows and 3 other three-orb combos pushes damage to ~5.7 million (17.1 million vs gods), so Xiang Mei spikes way harder. Anima's LS is more stable though, so he might be more for farming while she might be better suited to dungeons like the Arena.

if the unbindable leads badge works in co-op...

"a devil dragon should look "ugly" and menacing rather than looking like a pretty boy."

Yes, but this Anima uvo looked like an obese blob to me. Nothing as cool as the regular evolution Anima.

He and the Cursed Wyrm had traded looks, it seems.
Shoukon in reply to Mr-ex777 3 years ago ( 9.6.3 ) 
He might look fat, but that's just his foggy / steamy flames.
Inside it, his beautiful abs are still there, at least that's what I believe.

But ok, let's just say he is "fat", but he is far from being obese.
And there is nothing wrong with being fat.
Many fat guys are good looking to me (e.g. those Cyclops are actually kind of adorable).

But that's just my opinion, screw that fat people (but not too fat) are viciously smeared by the media nowadays, that perhaps in turn twisted many people's minds and values.

Looks like this guy is "Cho'Gath Flame Tornado With Kog'Maw Fireball Hands, Anima" but my Japanese is pretty weak so it might be something else.
By foskia 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
i've sold mine 3 days before they gave him a boost to the active skill (it was not 2x atk before)
and now this, seriously gungho, why?

give me back my anima
Amy 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
I was thinking the same thing.He is only one of two monsters that I've sold without having a dupe and this is the reason why I will never do it again.Im very disappointed.

I don't know about the situation in NA Stream.
But in JP Stream, NO ONE is using Anima when I am asking for one on a web page dedicated for players to host or join "rooms" in co-op mode.

I keep sending requests, "But nobody came" (*plays eerie music*)
And sometimes when I am the host, I saw people leaving 1 or 2 after seconds they entered my room, probably at the sight of my Anima... (Those b@$t@rds)

Fortunately, just recently, I somehow got myself another smart phone, so I can co-op with my 2 accounts anytime, anywhere.

My beloved Anima is just sitting there in my 2nd account, so my 1st account don't have to beg for one on the internet.

I myself am my most reliable co-op player!
I know exactly what I am doing, I adjust both teams to suit my needs, I control both teams, and decide when to stall for skills and when to pass.

Lol. I understand your pain. No one wants to coop with anima. I still like him.

I rolled two on an alt account and zero on my main. Bummer.

I use him exclusively in coop with my main. He pairs well with f/l tsubaki, but better with l/f ilm. I slaughter arena 1 with this pairing:

anima raphael inherit
gadius gadius inherit
f/l tsubaki
f tsubaki

l/f ilm raphael inherit
f tsubaki tsubaki inherit
l/l kanna
f/l tsubaki tsubaki inherit

raphael inherits for sopdet. ilm, kanna/anima for kali. double dragonkillers on tsubaki mean OHKO for dark kali. Enough two prongs with kanna can OHKO light kali.
hypermaxed both teams during +egg events. Some SDR latents throughout, plus time extends and rainbow resists. Not really necessary for arena 1, but I built this to take out a lot of different content with minimal changes.

sometimes I use revo minerva instead of anima for the defense, or switch out kanna for gadius or saria if I don't need the damage spike.

After a few months of using Animal, I must say this guy's amazing!!! Who gives a crap about the illustration?! I just wish I had one in my main account too so I could play myself in multi-player mode! I would easily destroy 95% of the game content! This guy is better than the machine gods: his LS gives you the HP to tank any preemptive and unlike hera and Zeus, his LS is unconditional. Unlike Athena who can only use wood machine cards (if you even have all 5 cards lol), there are no shortage of awesome devil or dragon cards and he has no color type restriction. His AS is incredible 2, as if he wasn't already packing enough punch. Pop his AS and double your unconditional damage. With his active skill and a 100% enhanced all fire orbs board, I've put out over 10 million PER CARD--with only one combo. That means you can easily create a push button team to destroy anything in the game. Absolutely phenomenal!

P.S. If you're worried about binds, put an unbindable bind clearer on your team. Gladius for example.
By Digly-01 3 years ago ( 9.5.1 ) 
I really like this guy and I actually like his artwork. He is pretty amazing and a very underrated card. His ult evo and co-op boost really raised this card into top tier territory.

First and foremost he is great for co-op farming if you have an alt account and have another one there or have a friend who runs this monster as a farm lead.

With a push button Goemon farm team you have to drop your HP to 1 in order to get 25x so unless you have Raphael or some sort of damage void/shield inherit many dungeons with multiple pre-emptive hits are not an option. An awoken ALB/Zeus Dios farm team takes quite a bit of work to put together and luck (getting ALB to drop from the REM). Both Goemon and Dios require a huge amount of investment in terms of jewels and skill ups.

Not so with Anima and the other Pad Z monsters like Cursed Wyrm. The LS is unconditional in co-op. You can pair him with another Anima or Cursed Wyrm for HP & RCV sustain builds. Doesn't matter which card you pair it with you get 56.25x damage in co-op. if you pair it with Cursed Wyrm just make sure your hp is above 50 but you got x2 to RCV to compensate and just throw a bind clearer healer on the team.

GOD killer in incredible as an awakening which gives him an additional 3x to damage against gods. Put him on a Sephiroth or Lightning rainbow team as a sub (who also have god killer), and your team will hit very hard, and he covers dark/red for you. He is even great on a Fenrir dark team or rainbow team as Fenrir system (minimum 2 Fenrirs 3 preferred) has god killer also. His AS of 2x will give the Fenrir team even more ridiculous burst if that wasn't enough already (Fenrir is x625 max).

He makes for a great sub on a Halloween Sonia Gran team and his 2x AS is perfect as both his and Sonia's actives give damage boosts to dragons and Animas also covers Devils.

You can put him pretty much on any rainbow team that has either a Devil or Dragon typing (So Awoken/Reincarnated Horus, Fenrir, Hallowem Sonia Gran, Sephiroth, Awoken Tsukuyomi, Durga, Awoken/Reincarnated RA, Anubis etc).

If you aren't rolling heart meta and don't own a Kaede or Myr who offer a shield or you don't have the skills to run some hard to activate rainbow lead, Anima especially in co-op is a great lead to have and also a stellar sub. 56.25x attack is nothing to laugh about. With a few rows on the team you are hitting 5-10 million damage. That will get you through 95%+ of all content in the game and you will be tanky enough to survive the hard hits. Throw some utility on the team like a bind clear, or a shield and you are good to go as lack of bind resistance is the only downside to having him in the lead. Sure in single player he isn't the best but still better then the current Norse/Dragonbound pairings. So if you pull him early make sure you keep him around. He is very versatile and worth keeping. You will pull cards that will make use of him. If you are thinking of setting up an alt account on a second phone, Android emulator, an IPad or Android tablet, Nintendo Switch or something else so you can co-op with yourself do not delete any of these guys from this series that give these unconditional co-op LS boosts. Even if you don't plan on playing co-op the 2x AS is worth keeping for any red row devil or dragon team that needs burst.

I'm kinda mad that this crap Anima's new evo has the same attack bonus has the new A. Ame, only major difference is that A. Ame has a 1.5x hp bonus and Anima has 1.35, oh, and you need 80%+ hp for A. Ame, what the hell.
